Democrats in the New York State Senate are looking to quickly pass a new law that automatically registers New York residents to vote in elections so long as they obtain a state-issued driver’s license.
Since illegal aliens can now get driver’s licenses, they would be registered automatically unless they opt-out, according to the bill. While people here illegally can’t vote, this sets up a situation inviting fraud.
If the bill passes, if illegal aliens do vote, they won’t be committing a felony, according to the government’s law department in Albany.
They almost passed the bill last year but wanted to tweak some amendments.
Reporter Zack Fink said he’s heard they will pass it in the Senate on Thursday and the Assembly will follow soon after.

The AVR bill was pulled at the 11th hour last year because it did not comport with #GreenLightNY
Supporters say that technical hurdle has been lifted
